There is in the Jovian system a great inequality 3:7 between the satellites Ganymede and Callisto. This study aims at exploring the effects of this great inequality on the recent orbital history of the Galilean satellites. We found that the system has crossed several stochastic layers and have some candidates to former resonances who might have been disrupted by the capture in the laplacian resonance between Io, Europa and Ganymede.
